Mobile SIM and data packs
If you're travelling to Melbourne from outside Australia, you may want to buy a temporary Australian SIM and data packs to use while you're here. Pay-as-you-go and add-on data pack options are available.
You can buy a SIM starter pack for as little as $2 at post offices, newsagents, music and electrical stores, major Australian supermarkets like Woolworths, Big W, K Mart and Coles, phone stores and brokers like Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Virgin and Dick Smith Electronics.
You may be able to order a SIM card online in advance. One of the best value, flexible, pay-as-you-go SIMs available in Australia is withAmaysim online. Please note that payment by credit card with an overseas billing address may not be accepted at the online checkout point. Give it a go.
